TRESA and local residents spent Saturday morning on 5th March tidying up Totterdown as part of the Bristol wide “Spring Clean”. A hardy group of 12 people braved the showers to meet on Zone A where they started litter picking and cutting back the bushes.
The group then progressed down the Wells Road, with some heading towards Angers Road and others heading for Zone N. Councillor Jon Wellington and some others cleaned the green park area on Angers Road, although it was looking quite clean to start with.
The group at Zone N picked up another four bags of litter from within the bushes, as well as digging up weeds and sweeping paths. Some of the group then carried on into Totterdown Square, and along the grass verge of Wells Road towards three lamps.
Over seven bags of litter and waste were collected and left ready for Bristol Waste to take away.
This event starts the regular monthly litter picks planned for the first Saturday of the month (usually until the clocks go back in late autumn and it starts to get too dark and cold!).
